How Not to Write Gospel Piano Chords

Last night my husband asked me to take down notes for a song he’s learning on the piano. He plays by ear. He listened to “Healing” by Richard Smallwood on YouTube and called out the notes for each part.

After church he went to find my notes so he could practice.


He immediately walked into the bedroom where I was stalking the South Carolina flash floods on social media.

What is this?

It looks like the matrix. Oh no! Morpheus had been kidnapped…Trinity is driving around on some motorcycle…while Neo is flying around the city fighting evil agents!

I don’t know what format he was looking for but my chicken scratch randomness clearly wasn’t working for him.

Now… maybe next time he’ll just Google it and click print. Seems like that would be the most efficient way to find out the chords.
